Time to eat,............my words. Working at Carmax, a bunch of traded in stuff streams across our wholesale lot. Today, a black 5 speed 98 w/ 116k, and a yellow 6 speed 03 w/ 89k are sitting there,....waiting to be liquidated through our wholesale auction one week from tommorrow (unless one of us buys it first) The 98 is hurt. Seems like it has a hurt cylinder (runs, but idle is burnt valve lumpy) Either the front two seats are stock black leather and the rear cloth has been swapped in, or vice versa, either way they are a mess. ( the driver seat is hagged, and the passenger seat looks like a 90 year old woman) The rear has this funky cloth pattern that was probably stock, other than that, the interior is good -to very good depending on which way you look.. The clutch has definitely been replaced, and it is mega stiff. Tires are great, body is great, and the only mod is a CA kit and some dumb, loud ass, ground draggin' 3" exhaust. The A/C does not work. Steering was dodgy. And,...I have the Ranger,...so I could drive that while I figure out how bad f'd up the 98 is The cons are obvious,...I gotta mechanical engine problem, an untolerable clutch,.the interior needs work, and it has a stupid gay la faire 3" exhaust almost dragging the road. Ohh,.....and it's the Jerry's kid of mustang body styles,.....a first gen SN 95. The pro's are equally obvious (to me at least). Tired and hurt, but mostly unmolested Cobra. 4 valve 4.6, A black cobra w/ a 7 outta 10 stock paint job on an undented rust free body, w/ a great, clean floor. $3615.00 It could be mine tommorrow. The 03 is "that yellow". 89k on the ticker,..the interior is way better than the upper car, grey suede middles against black leather side panels. It does have the same OHH MY GODD! clutch pedal as the 98, and the rear bumper has seen a few too many uhh,.......obstacles. The paint on the rear bumper will have to be redone. Other than that the body is also very good, and free from the the ravages of living in the north. The wheels are some black 5 spoke w/ massive rear rubber ( like 315's or somethin) Then there is that supercharger.....the 6 speed.....and that cool ass I.R.S. The best looking of the three ugly step children of Lee Ioccoca, I could grow to like the car. But it's 11,415.00. I'd have to find somebody willing to finance it. (fat chance) I said I hated SN 95,...and never gave the poor little red headed dork-mobile any credit. But w/ the Cobra emblem enblazoned across the rear bumper,.....it has a certain credibility. Honestly,...I don't know why I'm comparing the two,..the one car is really out of reach.....just thought I'd spice the place up. .
